"V\s|o wouldn't be hanged after having

HOPEFUL TO TH» LAST.
The condemned man still seemed to
entertain tbe hope that Governor Mark
ham would grant him a commutation of
hip sentence, until the last moment.
Promptly at 11 o'clock the doors to the
enclosure were thrown open and the
invited persons were permitted to enter.
It was but a few minutes till the space

vi.ncknt's brctai, chime.
Tiie crime tor which Vincent today
paid the death penalty was one of the
most shocking ever, committed in this
section, and has but few parallels in tbe
annals of crime. Nor. content with tor
turin(/ to madness the chosen companion
of hie bosom by a life of debauchery
and extreme brutality toward her, he
delioerately and cowardly murdered
the woman whom he a few abort years
before had sworn to love and protect.
The boldness with which this murderer
executed iiis terrible deed bae made hina
the subject of much comment.
THE USED OF BLOOD.
On a brieht. afternoon, December 18,
! 1890, armed witb two small vials, one
} containing prneeic acid, tbe other water,
i and with a revolver in his pocket, Vin
cent rode in a hack to the house, which
bad been closed against bim. On his
arrival there he demanded an interview
with his wife, which was granted. Upon
her refusal to withdraw a complaint
she had filed against him for a divorce,
he handed ber tbe vial containing pros
aic acid, commanding her to drink it,
■ stating that he would drink the con
| tents of the other. This being refused,
he deliberately drew his revolver and
j shot her four times in quick succession,
I killing her almost instantly. An officer
; was near at the time, and the murderer
was arrested while still bending over
the dying form of bis wife on the floor.
He was hurried to jail and summary
justice waß thwarted, for in a few
minutes a mob was crying for Vincent's
blood, and a strong guard placod around
the jail was all that prevented bis being
; banged that night,
A LONG IJEGAL EATTI.K.
The excitement soon subsided and the
law was allowed to take its course. He
was tried in Judge Holmes' department
of the superior court in tbe following
March, and on the 24th day of the month
the jury brought in a verdict; of guilty of
murder in tbe first degree. On April 8,
1891. Judge Holmes passed the eentence
of death upon him and fixed tbe date for
his execution May 29, 1891.. Then com
menced a legal battle which consumed
more than two years time, and which
incurred much expense.
HIS UNAVAILING HOl'K.
During the entire period since he com
mitted the crime Vincent maintained
that he would never bang. Even when
every point had gone against him he
would still insist that he would not pay
the death penalty. What be based bis
hopes on was more tban anyone couid
tell, and not until the very last daye of
bis existence did he show eigne of weak
ness and remorse.

Eight Men Seriously and Several
A Great Panic Caused In Crowded Tene
ments—The Fire Started by the
Explosion of a Barrel
By tho Associated Press.
Pi iTsui Ro, Pa., Oct. 27. —An explosion
of a barrel of whisky in the big ware
house of the Chautauqua Lake Ice com
pany this afternoon caused the destruc
tion of nearly 1)7.10,000 worth of prop
erty and the seriouß injury of eight per
sons. Several of tbe injured, it ia
feared, will die. ' A ecore or more of
others sustained elight cuts and bruises
or were trampled on by the mob Bur
rounding the burning buildings.
Tbe fatally hurt are: T. J. Heilman,
Martin Griffith, Edward Sees.
The lese seriously injured are: Wil
liam Cox, William Sm'th, Frank Mc-
Cann, William Wiseman, Jobn Reisecbe.
When the first explosion occurred the
men quickly gave the alarm und started
for tiie stairs, but tbe flames bad al
ready cut off retreat, and tbe only
meaus of exit left them was the win
dows, 50 feet from the ground. The
heat, was so intense that tbey were
forcod to creep out upon the window
eills and hang by their hands until the
tire department arrived. They were
terribly burned before being rescued.
In a short time the tire spread to the
seven-story building of tbe Pittsburg
Storage company adjoining, and botb
structures, 200 feet long and 100 feet
deep, were burning fiercely. At 2 o'clock
it looked as though tbe whole block
from Twelfth street to Thirteenth and
from Pike to Perm avenue was doomed,
and the residents were notified to move
To add to the excitement it was dis
covered that a large tank of ammonia
was located in the cellar of the ice com
pany's tbe police, fearing
an explosion, quickly ordered the occu
pants of the house on Twelfth street to
also vacate. All the houses in the
neighborhood are of tbe cheap class of
tenements, crowded to suffocation with
Polish Jews and Slave. When they
were told to move a panic that is indes
cribable was started among theui. Soon
after they got out the wail of the big
baiidinjr, was blown out by an explosion
of morn whisky stored therein, and the
debris buried a ion? row of tenements in
the alley and a three-etory brick dwel
ling on Thirteenth street. None of the
inmates saved any of their furniture.
Tbe ruins took tire immediately, and
for a whilo the entire tenement district
of Perm avenue was threatened with
destruction. By hard work the firemen
succeeded in drowning out the flames,
but it was late this evening before the
fire was really under control. When
tbe wall of the big building fell a great
mob of people made a rush to get out of
danger. Many men tripped and fell
and were trampled under foot. Scores
of people received slight injuries.
it midnight the loss is placed at
$700,000, of which $200,000 was bus- j
tamed by the Cnautauqua Lake Ice
company. President Scott of tbe latter
concern stated ihat nearly every firm
doing business in tbe down-town district
of Pittsburg had goods stored in their
warehouse, it is thought all tbe losses
are covered by insurance.

San Francisco, Oct. 27.—The mid
winter fair committee from the south

hearts upon locating their building on
tbe ridge behind and above the horti

tbe clump of Monterey pines standing
between these two buildings would be a
detriment to that location, and they
have been warring with Superintendent
MacLaron of tbe park about cutting
them down. Their argument was that
this clump of trees stood between
Southern California and tbe exposition,
but through tbe interposition of Gov
ernor Markham and Acting President
Mitchell, coupled with the graciouaness
of the park commissioners and others
who were present, tbe matter was satis
factorily adjusted yesterday afternoon,
